Nothing makes me happier than to be around animals. After many years of working in the corporate world, I finally pursued my dreams of working in the veterinary field. I recently completed my AS degree in Veterinary Technology and now I spend my days nursing animals, educating clients, and working with an incredible team to bring the best possible care to every animal that walks through our doors. Every day brings new challenges and looking into their big brown (or green, or blue) innocent eyes, I strive to do my best to make their visit as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
My name is Lori Giovanelli and I have been a veterinary technician for 15 years. I have been a part of the VCA Imperial Point Animal Hospital family for 10 years. I have a great passion for animal medicine and enjoy working side by side with the doctors to help animals in need feel better and to stay healthy. I have 3 cats and 2 dogs. When I'm not working I'm with my daughter and furry kids. I enjoy spending my spare time with family and friends preferably outdoors.
Some of my values in life are integrity, compassion for others and maintaining a positive attitude all the time. My beliefs and values lead me to a role in the veterinary field. I want to perform and be as incredible as my pets "think" I am. Mastering my skills as a technician and eventually a Veterinarian will allow me to provide top quality care for those in need.
As long as I can remember I’ve been an animal lover. Whenever I was over at my friend’s houses as a child I was always the one hanging out with their pets. I was always interested in the medical field and have found that I’m much more passionate about animals. Everyday I come to work I feel so blessed to be doing what I do. I love helping animals every day; they keep me staying positive and happy. I also love all of my coworkers at VCA Imperial Point; they’re my family, my home away from home.
